This current and expanded edition of a bestselling text is divided into
four sections, organized to follow the sequence in which decisions are made
regarding hearing aid fittings, and featuring new chapters on middle ear
implants, hearing aid counseling, and infection control. Other chapters have
been revised to reflect the latest developments in the field, such as: improving
speech recognition with directional microphones; changing standards for
measuring real-ear performance; and new prescriptive procedures for severe
hearing loss.

The text features contributions from internationally renowned
experts in the field who share their extensive knowledge and clinical
experience. It covers the six most common forms of hearing loss practitioners
will encounter in their own practice--noise-induced, symmetrical, asymmetrical,
unilateral, conductive, and severe hearing loss--with instructions on applying
the newest technology to each hearing impaired group.

Key features:

  • Addresses the six most common types of hearing loss
    that comprise 90-95% of the situations audiologists encounter daily

  • Organized to follow the decision-making progress in
    selecting and verifying hearing aid fittings

  • Fully updated with state-of-the-art technology on
    implantable hearing aids, directional microphones, and more

  • A valuable glossary of terms at the end of the
    text--helpful for students and specialists alike

Together with its updated companion text, HEARING AIDS: STANDARDS, OPTIONS, AND LIMITATIONS, this book
forms the basis of a complete reference library on selecting, ordering,
measuring, and verifying hearing aid fittings and performance.
